We decided to use Down and Out by Coma 69 as we wanted todo a Heavy metal band and we could create a performance basedvideo that emphasised the band within it. We emailed the band to get permission to use their song, coming back with a reply that we could.
We started by drawing out storyboards and filming them tocreate an animatic. This enabled us to visualize what the video wouldpotentially look like, using a Sony NX 5 camera and using Final Cut Pro.
On the shoot day we varied the lenses we used from 18mm,25mm and 50mm on a Sony FS100; which sharpened detail and evenallowed us to shoot in Slow Motion. We used this equipment to givethe right professional look for our product.
One constant theme of our editing process was to portray eachband member individually and close-ups on there instrument skills.The lenses changes gave us the different hot size and better qualitypictures.
We used Final Cut Pro to edit the music video. First we had tolook through all of our shots and decide which ones we wanted to useand which
ones we didn’t want to use
putting them into separatefolders called bins.
After this we dragged the song onto the timeline, followed bysyncing the shots by finding the beat in the song and the same point in the video. A crucial digital technology, which improved ourproduct quality.
As seen in our product lip sync enables the video to appearlike the song was recorded live.
The ‘Viewer’ and ‘Canvas’ sectionallowed me to view the clips and final video. The ‘Timeline’ section
was where I dragged the clips onto and edited them together. Thisallowed me to put the final music video together.
We had a Time-lapse of the day to make a record of the shoot day taking pictures every 40 seconds to allow us to have a picture of everything we had done. This meant that we could record every littlething we did on the day.
